Product Review (submitted on February 7, 2012):
This reel has far exceeded my expectations. I have literally spent a fortune on expensive reels for my other outfits believing they must give me an advantage somehow. I outfitted the CLA3 on my 4wt sage esn and I am impressed. I brought in twenty trout nymphing on light tippet all in the 16-18 inch range and wow was that drag smooth. This is my favorite reel. I'm a bit embarassed about my other purchases. From now on its CLA!
